Due to increased responsibility, long work hours, staff shortages, and other factors, burnout is a problem among nurses across the country. One-out-of-three nurses report feeling unsatisfied about their work environment. It’s one of the highest contributors of staff turnover and a driving force behind nurses leaving the profession altogether.
Burnout and a low Well-Being Index score can lead to many negative implications. On a personal level, burnout has been directly linked to depression, a decreased quality of life, even personal harm. From an organizational standpoint, a decreased well-being leads to decreased patient care levels, on-the-job error, and is correlated with high staff turnover.
The Nurse Well-Being Index was invented at the Mayo Clinic to evaluate multiple dimensions of distress. It is a completely anonymous online tool that accurately measures well-being in just 9 questions. After completing the assessment, users have the ability to track their wellness over time, access to helpful resources, and more.
The goal of the Nurse Well-Being Index is to identify the problem and give institutions and nurses a way to track well-being. Once the problem is addressed, a solution to improve well-being can be implemented, rejuvenating passion and purpose.
Once you have a cost estimate, you can print or share your estimate to plan for future planning purposes.
You will get instant access to the Well-Being Index demo account to test the software as different types of users. We will also send you a confirmation email with the link to the demo account for future access.
